4 star hotel

4.6

Colonial style mansion with a secret garden in old Sóller.

Poke your nose around the solid wooden door that serves as the entrance to Ca'n Roses and there before you lays an oasis of tender green ferns, 100- year-old palm trees, flowers gone crazy in every colour imaginable, orange and lime trees. If they could unleash a thousand butterflies, the mirage would be perfect.

Location

Right in the middle of Sóller, and less than five minutes' walk from the main square where locals and tourists alike congregate for morning coffee, long, lazy lunches, afternoon beers, and later, sunset G&Ts. Carrer de la Luna is also close by, which is handy for picking up island arts and crafts and gourmet goodies.

Bedrooms

Yummy. There are eight spacious rooms here, each individually decorated. Having spend the better part of my career attempting to find rooms with fireplaces (I prefer travelling out of season when it's quieter, cheaper and usually colder) I was excited to discover the Patio room, which as well as having a roaring open fire has a private patio and staircase down into the garden. When it's hot you’re better off in the Four Poster room, which, as you might expect, has a four-poster bed. In the summer you can sleep outdoors on the terrace covered in a mosquito net. How cool is that?

Public areas

The lounge reminds me of something out of a Mills and Boon novel, with its big white sofa strewn with embroidered cushions, and vases of flowers everywhere. There’s a computer for guests, with Internet if you can’t keep your hands off your email. Yep. Guilty I'm afraid. Up an ancient stone staircase you’ll find the library. This space is more formal with a long reading table and polished wooden chairs, a nice big fireplace and tons of books. Even the garden doubles as a lounge of sorts, with its Balinese double-poster day beds.

Eating and drinking

Love the big, communal dining table where everyone gathers in the morning, tuck into eggs, buttery croissants and coffee, has a chat, gets to know each other a bit. Very jolly.

Leisure facilities

The pool table is an unexpected bonus.

Service

Of the kind where everything gets done, but you don’t ever see anyone doing it.

Who stays there

Very popular with both couples and families. Kids are made exceptionally welcome.

Price advice

10% discount for single occupancy. If you need a kids' bed it’s yours for a reasonable €35 a night.
